Center Offers New Course on Responsible

Conduct of Research

Are you a trainee on a K, F, T, or R grant at IU School of Medicine?   Do you need Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training?  The NIH requires that recipients of these grants have training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), including 8 hours of face-to-face instruction, above and beyond CITI training or mentorship.

GRDM 506 -  Responsible Conduct of Translational Research.   The course will focus on translational research, is team taught by faculty in the Bioethics and Subject Advocacy Program (BSAP) of the Indiana CTSI, emphasizes case discussion, and is just 8 weeks of 1.5 hours per week, (just Jan and February – ends before spring break).  Meets Wednesdays 2-3:30.
